Davenport City Administrator Search Update

The next step in the search for a new Davenport city administrator is set for Thursday. The search committee is scheduled to hold a closed meeting to go over applications.

The city hired a consultant, Strategic Government Resources, to help find a replacement for Craig Malin who resigned last summer, and by last week's deadline, 34 people had applied for the job.

Davenport Human Resources Director Dawn Sherman says at Thursday's meeting the search committee will narrow the list of candidates. Then references will be checked, and the results discussed at the committee's next meeting in June.

No names will be released until they've accepted invitations for on-site interviews in July. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
